Edward Clair joined with Mr. Kenney and the partnership of Kenney & Clair was formed, here in Walworth County. Thereafter, in 1978, the professional service corporation of Clair Law Offices, S.C. was established and the tradition of providing our community with quality legal services continued.

The partners at Clair Law Offices provide the communities in southeastern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois a high level of experience and professionalism.
